The basic premise of this movie is that once your image is recorded and played back on television, it becomes a living duplicate of you that now exists in a parallel TV universe. A man gets interviewed on live TV; he's then duplicated in the TV universe -- and now this duplicate needs energy to live. Every time the man watches television, he loses energy. Across the country, televisions begin to drain people's energy, and they end up dying in front of their TV sets. To survive, he must take a universal remote control wherever he goes, in order to switch off any televisions around him.

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
